"I've always been backward on morals, but I do know how to dress
appropriately for any given occasion, and that's more than half the battle." - The Stray Lamb

    Thorne Smith was one of the top writers of American humor in the late 1920's until his untimely death in 1934. His works have been endlessly imitated - but never duplicated.  His most famous works were immortalized on the silver screen - most notably Topper, starring Cary Grant, and The Passionate Witch ( renamed  I Married a Witch), starring Fredric March and Veronica Lake.  His works were full of satire and wit combined with a heavy dose of unbridled, whimsical, intoxicated sexual innuendo. 
    With so many booksellers on the internet today, Smith's works are much easier to find.  The LINKS section offers a few methods I've had success with.  His first editions are highly sought after collectibles - so browse those online used book stores!!! 
    So why bother with a web page for Thorne Smith?  Smith was an extremely creative innovator that brought smiles to the faces of the Depression era.  He found a niche that allowed the common man (white and blue collar alike) to dream of  breaking free of the mundane bonds of day-to-day existence and to enjoy the simple things that make life enjoyable.  This page was set up, in part, to remind people that there are forgotten treasures like Thorne Smith waiting to be discovered all over again.  Read on and enjoy!
